Synopsis:
"Citizen Lane" is an innovative mix of documentary and drama that delivers a vivid and compelling portrait of Hugh Lane (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), one of the most fascinating and yet enigmatic figures in modern Irish history. A man of multiple contradictions, by turns infuriatingly parsimonious or extraordinarily generous, a professed nationalist and a knight of the realm; a monumental snob and a fearless campaigner for access to the arts. The film, realises his unique and curious blend of attributes. The drama is intercut with interviews from contemporary documentary contributors such as Professors Roy Foster, Paul Rouse and Art Historian Morna O'Neill.
Their narrative is richly illustrated by the paintings of Lane's collection. A twist in the tale is the long-running campaign to recover for Ireland Lane's Bequest of 39 great Impressionist paintings, Monet, Renoir and Manet among them, left unwittingly to the National Gallery London.
